inspections. that to me was another example of our city being incredibly innovative in figuring out a way to confront the challenges that we do face particularly in the area of human trafficking on one side. i think it all fits to having this hearing tonight, the work of the family violence council for me - i feel like a broken record, i feel it is a model, the benefit of being both a city and county, in some respects it is easier to bring all partner agencies together by choice or by hook. but i would urge us to continue to look at regional partnerships and for ways to support this beyond our boundaries. the crimes are not just within our boundaries. >> a want to make this comment before we go into public comment, more question than anything else. in the spirit of how i do business. this is the part of tonight's agenda. i'm not saying it should have been. but tonight looking at the response of domestic violence, the prosecution rates, the query reporting module, and the other things i'm curious about the status of women. at some point i would like to hear about any progress in

think it's worth noting adopted area plans cover much of the city where we expect a lot of the growth that sarah has talked about would occur by 20 40 ~. so, having said that, though, i did want to highlight a couple of implications that if the city chose to perform c-e-q-a review under sb 375, there could be some potential benefits that could be gained and those are the standard of review would be different for a negative declaration. right now the standard of review is [speaker not understood] under sb 375 or under this plan it will be the substantial evident standard which defers to the lead agencies and expertise. if we do end up performing an e-i-r, for instance, one of the benefits would be that we would not have to look at off-site alternatives in our e-i-r analysis. it is relatively rare for us to do that in the city, but we do have projects for which we do that and in the future if we opt to proceed c-e-q-a calls under 375, we may not have to do that. similarly, and i think this is probably the most important one, is when we do an e-i-r for residential project under sb 375, w

necessary. and one way that in the eastern neighborhoods is parts of the city that 20 or 30 years ago were very different and where they are make-up, and it has completely changed the face of those areas and the city. these areas have the highest parking we have ever measured, it is incredibly difficult to find a parking space and so to address those current issues as well as the ones that we see coming, and a lot that have is focused here. and i am working and in these areas. and so if we do not. we are concerned, not just by the transportation issues but the absence of parking management if left, it could hold back, and to pull up to those areas. and so, these in many ways are just following through the implementing what was called for, the issue of this process over the last decade. for those process, further parking management proposals, and we want to touch on the process, and obviously cause a lot of concern, and so those initial parking proposals were developed in 2011, on the basis of pretty significant data collection sxout reach. but as we move to the approval process in may of 2

of public safety we're painting for the rest of the city if we want to make an imimprint on the city that we're doing a better job of tackling recidivism. 75 percent of our population is pretrial that means that a high majority of the folks in our jail population can't afford bail or people who certainly representative of more disadvantaged population. and for the first time in the null insensitive commission we're wrestling with old mainstays that have vexed criminal justice system nearly 70 percent of our jail population is with substance problems. but when you see mental health issues we're seeing a higher behavior court those were court again that were established some years ago and are worth their weight in gold so help process a population instead of just falling back on indicator first then rehabilitate later. the picking order is 55 thousand dollars a year so if we resort to more alternative ways to make a good use of resources we are saving the taxpayers significant amounts of money. i absolutely >> - excuse me. >> i welcome the budget analysts reports. >> tell you said accident
